  • Sense-making and crisis management
  • Transitional experiences
  • Failure and recovery 
  • Patient empowerment
  • Business modeling and foresighting
  • Emotions and learning
  • Social values and responsibility
  • Collective memory and cultural heritage
  • Business ethics
  • Late globalization and internationalization
  • Economic power
  • Organizational knowledge 
  • Academic entrepreneurship
  • Global value chain

External and internal faculty provided support for the course: Dr. Andy Lowe, Grounded Theory Institute in California; Professor Emeritus Nikhilesh Dholakia, University of Rhode Island; Dr. Michael Fast, Aalborg University; and Dr. Romeo V. Turcan, Aalborg University.

As always, we are indebted to Dr. Barney Glaser for the opportunity to share his wealth of expertise with our doctoral researchers via a life-skype call from California.
